The stylish cars and trucks produced by Willy’s in the early 1940s have long been a cornerstone of the hot-rodding and drag racing crowd. While a Hemi-powered '40 Willy’s tearing up a local drag strip is an iconic image for any historic drag racing aficionado, the same sight might make a traditional marque enthusiast squirm. Whether in coupe or light-duty pickup form, the compact dimensions and light weight of the Willy’s “Ameri-car” line lent itself well to hotrodders shoving massive V8 engines under the hood and going racing.
Presenting everyone’s favorite drag car, an all steel 1940 Willy’s 440 Deluxe. It has been converted back to a streetcar now with a new crate 350, a rebuilt Turbo 400 and a Ford 9” rear. Motor and trans has approximately 500 miles on this frame of resto! Some race parts remain, like the fuel cell, full roll cage, 31X18.50-15 rears and 215/70R 14 in the front.
Inside there are the creature comforts like leather interior, tilt wheel, power windows, full gauge panel and a super nice Grant steering wheel.
It could easily be made into drag car again if that is your wish or just cruise into every car show in town and at least smoke the tires for the crowd!
